What is Luxury Vinyl Flooring?
Vinyl flooring has a reputation as being the “cheap” alternative to real stone or wood-look flooring. Due to advances in technology in the flooring industry, vinyl has now become a “luxury” product, also called luxury vinyl tile or luxury vinyl plank. These floors has become a homeowner’s favorite choice when it comes to flooring tricky spaces such as basements, mudrooms, and even kitchens and bathrooms.
Is Luxury Vinyl Flooring Durable?
What makes luxury vinyl so different from the original vinyl flooring is that it now comes in a more rigid option. Luxury vinyl is made from multiple layers that each plays a role in the performance of the floor. The most notable layers are the image and wear layer. The image layer can be made to look exactly like a real piece of wood or stone, making it a great alternative to the real deal. The wear layer is the top layer of the luxury vinyl floor, and that is where it gets its durability. The wear layer resists scratches and scuffs and is easy to clean.
Not all luxury vinyl is made the same. There are some brands that make their luxury vinyl with a waterproof core, meaning you can install them in bathrooms, kitchens, or anywhere there is high moisture.
